Manage The Kids

You’re all on vacation, sure – but not your tour guide, who already has a job, and doesn’t want to have to raise your children while doing it.

Be Respectful

She, or he, KNOWS something. There might have been years of study. Your museum tour guide might be a painter themseives.

Be Part Of The Group

If you didn’t buy a private tour…you didn’t! So get into the spirit of being part of the group. This means the occasional compromise. That’s fine! Just remember, being part of a group means it can’t be all about you.

Let Your Tour Guide Eat

Your tour guide needs to recharge every now and then. Allow him or her a moment to have some privacy. You’ll end up with a better tour guide.

Use Discretion

Your tour guide knows the best restaurants, the quiet, out-of-the-way books. But keep it quiet, OK? No one wants their favorite cafe overrun with tourists because you turned your tip into an online article.

Say Yes To Goofy

You’ll have a lot more fun if you aren’t self-conscious and trying to ‘act cool.’ The Colosseum in Rome is awesome. It’s OK to be awed!

Not Too Personal

We guarantee it: you aren’t the first tourist to attempt to flirt with your guide. Are you Bond, James Bond? No? Then your luck will be better with someone else.
